Write for Rights works!

In Write for Rights 2021, letters from students supported and amplified the voice of Bernardo Caal, an environmental human rights defender in Guatemala. He had been in prison since 2018 and was serving a seven year prison sentence. In March 2022, we learned the incredible news that Bernardo had been released. Thank you to all of you who participated in this campaign last year! Read more good news stories here.
